Back on track

Finally some exercise. Tuesday woke up to ice outside my window, -2ºc. outside. No I’m not in Spain! Flew to England to see my Dad yesterday and am spending a couple of days here. No pool so it’s on with the running shoes. There’s a very nice short 4,5km. run from the house down in to the Compton valley with an old Mill, fat labradors, mooching Galloways and icy ponds to keep me entertained as I run around this sedate landscape.

I took it very easy yesterday but today I pushed a bit harder taking my average heart rate up to 170bpm and knocking 4 minutes off yesterdays time. Great! Felt good all the way round. Back to some serious running training when I get back.
